You even dare asking this question only one day after non-x86
CPUs have officially been declared extinct!?

qemu is already able to run x86 Windows programs on non-x86 CPUs, with
the Wine package that's distributed on the qemu website already.
Not sure whether integrating qemu directly would help a lot...
Hmm, probably yes, since the whole Win32 API part would be done natively,
but there's still the whole x86 program part remaining for translation.
